"THE PEOPLE'S BANK." 9
The project of a popular bank iu
Honolulu has revived after having
apparently slept for some time. Its
promoters intend calling a meeting at
an early day, when the public will be
taken into their full confidence. Half
a million dollars is mentioned as 'the
capital of the institution, which it is
hoped will all be subscribed here. If
not, there is little doubt felt that the
required amount will be readily ob
tainable in Great Britain, by a mem
ber of a large firm there who has
heavy business interests here. As the
trade of the Kingdom has about tre
bled nn ithin the past three years, it is
considered there is room for another
banking house. It certainly does
not look as if financial despondency
had seized the community, when ma
ny of its leading capitalists arc ready,
as is the ease, to embark in an enter
prise of so great financial responsi
bility. Although under no outside
restraint, we prefer not to mention
names, but when revealed the pub
lic will find in the names of the pro
moters of the bank the highest guar
antee of financial capacity and good
" CRASPIHC THE SITUATION."
The action of Mr. Spreckcls, in
taking silver in payment for exchange
at about 1J pereenl less than gold,
is undoubtedly an act of relief in the
present unhappy condition of the
currency ; but we. arc puzzled to
know how the Hawaiian can des
cribe this as by any means "grasping
the situation." The situation was
grasped a year ago, when the Cham
ber of Commerce stated to tho Min
istry that the only safe course was
to limit the importation of silver to
the local requuements of the King
dom. That statement was unfor
tunately disregarded, and we have
now a disairangcmenl of the cur
rency which nothing will cure ex
cept withdrawal of the surplus silver
It is a relief that the Treasury will
accept the uncurrent coins at 'par,
and that Messrs. Irwin & Co. v. ill
'accept them at 081 cents; but this
does not get rid of the danger that
has so long threatened us. It is a
serious matter to declare the silver
depreciated, whether to 80 cents or
to' 08J cents, and the Chamber of
Commerce showed their appreciation
of this danger by using every means
in their power to avoid it. The step
has now been taken and silver is at
1A percent discount. It cannot go
below 20 percent discount, but tho
discount is no longer a question of
principle but of degree. This point
in the situation has evidently not
,1 been grasped by the Daily Hawaiian.
Another letter on the subject of a
debating (society makes the good
point that it would be a means for
facilitating the use of English by
persons of other tongues.

This is a most untidy practice, and

Thcie is no lack of annuals hero,
any more than of more frequent
periodicals. The latest out is, "The
Honolulu 'Almanac and Directory,
1885, " issued from the Advertiser
ofTlce. It has 110 pages of reading
matter, besides many pages of adver
tisements. A very full court and
official directory is given, and trade
statistics are brought up to tho close
of last year. A good thing in the
calendar pages is the substitution of
stale universal chronology, jn large
part, with interesting Hawaiian
events. The literal department
comprises a biographical sketch of
the King ; a retrospect of 1884 ; tho
Volcanic Problem, by W. L. Green,
and a description of the valleys of
Waipio and Waiinanu. Tho work is
neatly gotten up and well printed,
although deficient proof reading
causes some blemishes.
" CHEAP" BUILDING MATERIAL.
In no field of commerce is the rule
of " cheap " prices, " cheap goods"
so generally true as iu tho purchas
ing of building matei ial ; and be
cause of this, property that should
remain substantial and unimpaired
for many years rapidly depreciates
because the owner at the start sought
to cheapen his building by giving a
low price and expecting to obtain
good work and good material. The
owner has probably been educated
to this by first buying his lot.
He finds that real estate in a cer
tain neighborhood is of a certain
supposed value, that value being the
price paid in tho more recent pur
chases, and if he succeeds in obtain
ing his ground for a less figure he
has made a good bargain, and his
ground is worth just as much as
though he had paid a larger sum.
He goes to his architect and tries to
secure "cheap" professional ser
vices. Such can be had, but he has
now entered a field where values are
unchangeable. It is impossible to
get good services cheap, but he does
not know it, or wilfully closes his
eyes to the fact, and the result is
the business man who would not
dream of submitting an important
law case to a "cheap" lawyer, or
trusting himself in, the hands of a
"cheap" physician, will consider
the less he pays his architect the
better off ho is. He insists upon
"cheap" contracts, and perhaps
the contractors, after figuring upon
the lowest "living" basis, are re
quested to le-figure, and the result
is a lot of contracts let for less than
cost, and a building that is
"skimped" in every place it is
possible, and in the end the owner
receives a building that in a few
years will bo practically worthless.
It seems to us that architects can do
much to regulate all this by educat
ing tho building public. They should
deal with none but reliable contrac
tors, and feel perfectly free to givo
u contract to the most capable
builder, instead of the lowest bidder,
where the circumstances warrant it.
This is a professional question that
should receive the early attention of
